LIV Golf’s Richard Bland clinched a poignant triumph at the 84th edition of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship on the PGA Champions Tour, carding a final round 63 for a total score of 267, concluding 17 under par at Harbor Shores Golf Club in the US.

The 51-year-old English golfer, having availed himself of a one-time exemption for DP World Tour players with a victory in the last five years, penned a request to the organizers in December for the chance to participate, which was granted. This marked his Senior Major debut, where he initially led at the halfway stage after rounds of 64 and 66. Despite a setback with a third-round score of 74, Bland rebounded in the final round, notably sinking a crucial shot on the 15th hole to secure an eagle and claim the lead.

Following the round, Bland expressed his elation, stating, “The British Masters was very special at 48. This is right up there – I could not be happier.” His victory held particular significance as he dedicated it to his brother, Heath, who is battling cancer.

With this win, Bland solidified his spot for the US Senior Open at Newport Country Club, Rhode Island, from June 27th to 30th, while also boosting his standings in the season-long Individual and Team Standings for LIV Golf.

The upcoming LIV Golf event will take place in Houston, Texas, US from 7th to 9th June 2024. The results of the recent championship are as follows:
